What Does Black History Month Mean To You This Year?

This year Black History Month means more to me than ever before. With such significant figures as the Obamas leaving the White House after an eight year run, I think it's imperative to recognize the kindness, grace, and humility in which they maneuvered throughout the past two terms.  It is also equally important, that we relish in their accomplishments, using them as motivation to stand on their shoulders to reach even higher, dream bigger, and stand taller. It's more importantthan ever to remember, reflect and honor black history, and to also be immersed in the movement of making black history ourselves.

Where Are You Finding Inspiration Today To Design This Year?

The main inspiration for my projects comes from the heart.  I am always motivated by the feeling one gets seeing their space completed for the first time, or how they will react to the design board because it encompasses everything they wanted to articulate (aesthetically) but couldn't.  These days I am finding additional inspiration for my projects by taking staycations.  I'm a hands on person, and I learn so much better when I can experience things in person.  By taking short getaways to a great restaurant, coffee shop, a used bookstore,  or even staying in a unique boutique hotel I force myself to relax and immerse all of my senses into my surrounding environment.  On each trip, I pull from whatever emotional and visual connections I can to inspire me for my next project.
